Your Teacher

Professional chess player and trainer. In own play, very successful in the team competitions. In coaching, taking care of a student's personality is the most important for me; of course point is to make strong progress in chess just not to push too hard about.

My background & experience

I was a trainer of the national teams of Japan, Serbia, and Switzerland in 2006 - 2018 (different years and competitions of course). The teams I was coaching faced the fantastic Magnus Carlsen twice and quite surprisingly, he lost both games. He lost against Ivaniševic, the best Serbian player for a long time, in Greece in 2007, and against Pelletier (best Swiss player for many years) in Reykjavik in 2015.

My classes and teaching style

In general want to develop recognizing patterns and skill in the game - not memorization by heart. Logical thinking helps a lot for that. Understanding is another important feature in chess, which provides that something once learned can stay long in mind.

My certifications

GM, peak rating 2601. Graduated chess coach at the Sport Academy (this school does not exist any more) in Belgrade. FIDE trainer.

    Mihajlo, or Misha as they call him, gives a must-take chess class. He is super smart in chess and you can tell he really loves the game. That made it fun to learn from him. I definitely learned some new ways of thinking and had a good time. I would recommend it to a friend!

    Mihajlo helped me understand important key points in chess during our class. He made me understand chess rather easily, a game I've been trying to understand for quite sometime now.
